Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Issues with searches

Well I just got to the bottom of something I thought I'd share, even though most vets are probably aware of this issue already.

I've been confounded for a while why sometimes when I click the "check for other copies" link in a show here I come up with nothing, when I know for a fact that there are other sources available. Maybe I've just been unobservant, but I just now noticed that it appears that new uploads here are categorized as "THE Grateful Dead" while older sources only come up when you search for "Grateful Dead" without the "The".

I wonder if this is intentional, a mistake, and if it is easily remedied or if anyone even cares.

Thanks I've just searched by date when I notice the same problem - didn't notice the THE.
Peace

I just find it easier to use this page:

http://www.archive.org/browse.php?collection=GratefulDead&;field=year

If you search by year you then get every show in the IA listed.

I think your link didn't get copied all the way, so here it is again. I have found the same problem recently when looking for other copies of the same show to compare. I sure would agree there seems to be something worth fixing here for all of us obsessed freaks.

oops, I see it didn't work on my post either, wonder why? maybe I'll try again to copy and paste it
